NCP described the late Salem as a courageous man.
“Salam was a gentleman to the core and a good friend, we owe him a special tribute.
“Accordingly, we at the National Conscience Party would like to send our condolences to his family, Labour Party, Inter-party Advisory Council, (IPAC) the government and people of Niger State, and Paiko where Salam was a titleholder as Braden Paiko.
Abdulkarim Salam was a courageous politician with a nose for business. But not even this affected his views on national issues which he often expressed unequivocally.
“Although a political party man, Salam often kept the masses in his heart from partisan frays.
“He has passed away when his services were most needed.
“Nigeria will miss him. We pray for the repose of his soul”, the statement added.
